Barcelona's stumble

Barcelona seemed like the unbeatable team throughout La Liga, they are at 60 points, 13 above Real Madrid, (which could become 10 points if Real Madrid win their match against Sporting Gijon) Barcelona has 19 wins 3 draws and only 1 loss out of 23 games, probably one of the worlds greatest runs so far. They have scored 70 goals and conceding only 18 goals, Barcelona have dominated La Liga so far and now they draw with Real Betis? The final score being 2-2, Real Betis had a running start scoring 2 goals one in the 18th minute by Melli and another one in the 25th minute by Mark Gonzalez, after around 15 minutes the sleeping giant Barcelona wakes up and in the 44th minute Eto'o scores on a penalty kick that was at first saved but then Eto'o blasted the ball in after the keeper couldn't catch it. After the halftime break Barcelona continue looking for a goal and finally find it in the 81st minute, another one by Eto'o. But would Barcelona have tied the game up if it weren't for the penalty kick? And although this game looks like just a small stumble by Barcelona they should be careful to not fall down and let Real Madrid surpass them and snatch the title.
